Flint S. "Scotty" Schulhofer (May 30, 1926 - December 14, 2006) was an American Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse trainer.

Early life[edit]

Schulhofer was born into a racing family in Aiken, South Carolina, where his father owned a racing stable as well as a riding academy. While in his teens, he worked for trainer Oleg Dubassoff before serving overseas with the United States Army infantry during World War II. At war's end, he studied for two years at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. Enrolled in a premed program, he did not pursue his education further, preferring to return to the horse racing industry.

Training career[edit]

In 1962, Schulhofer saddled his first winner at Aqueduct Racetrack. He went on to win another 1,118 races, including two Breeders' Cup races, and the Belmont Stakes Classic, twice.

Retirement[edit]

Schulhofer retired from training in 2002 but remained active within the industry as a breeder. He was living in Hollywood, Florida at the time of his death on December 14, 2006. He is buried in Aiken, South Carolina.

His son, Randy Schulhofer, is also a Thoroughbred trainer.

Honors[edit]

Schulhofer was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1992.
